About the author

Helen Graves is a London-dwelling sandwich fanatic who has made it her personal mission to find the best sandwiches known to man or woman. The whole time she has done nothing but moan about the lack of decent recipe books devoted to sandwiches while simultaneously doing nothing about it. All that is now about to change. Visit Helen’s websites at helengraves.co.uk and http://londonreviewofsandwiches.wordpress.com. The author is based in London, UK.

Shakespeare claimed music was the food of love, which is a pretty ridiculous statement as food is clearly the food of love. You can’t say food is the music of love, it doesn’t make sense, so why should it work the other way round? In this case, the bard is definitely talking out of his unquestionably eloquent backside. Anyway, as food is the food of love, it’s the perfect accompaniment to days and nights spent wooing members of the opposite sex (or same sex, we’re not here to judge). If you spend even a short amount of time with the object of your desire, there’a good chance food will be involved. Whatever the reason for the two of you eating together, there’s no doubt a story that goes with it or a recipe to share, and that’s what Cook Your Date Into Bed does. It looks at the relationship between hooking up and eating out, gives tasty recipes for dinners, snacks, breakfasts, and cocktails you can make yourself, and also laughs at the ridiculousness of the whole process. After all, most situations can be dealt with via the introduction of food, or booze, and dating is no different. So let us begin.
